    Default Trying to remember the name of a game

    This has been driving me crazy for years, especially since I remember so little.

    It would have been around the late 80's/early 90's. It was very similar to Altered Beast, 2 player, side scrolling fighting game. It had a type of barbarian theme, from what i remember both players were only wearing loin cloths . You started with a short sword and shield, but you could collect a powerup which gave you a double handed sword with extra reach.
    To point out the obvious, it's not Golden Axe

    Could be "RASTAN" ? I do not remember that two players could play at the same time ... but now that you said this I remember I have seen an intro video about a barbarian fighting against praying mantis. After some seconds he got an axe that could throw ... I do not know the name but I saw it at Mame

    Rastan is only one player. Sounds somewhat like Magic Sword as far as the power-ups, but I believe that is one player as well.

    I think there were two sequels to Rastan. It may be the third one.
